Thanks to your donations to the Wisconsin Dental Association Foundation, 13 nonprofit organizations have received funding to keep Wisconsin residents smiling in 2021. The Foundation has awarded $55,350 in grant funding to programs across the state that mirror its mission of improving the oral health and overall well-being of Wisconsin residents.
Last year was difficult for everyone. Jobs have been lost and with it, earnings have been lost or reduced. Families are looking for help, more now than ever before. Thankfully, many nonprofit dental clinics and programs are still bringing free or low-cost oral treatment to those who need it.
The WDA Foundation works on your behalf to assure that quality nonprofits share in your gifts. The funding you provide through your donations to the Foundation often mean the difference between an organization providing care or needing to turn away deserving individuals.
